I would be interested if you have ideas. I just bought the 7510e today. Liking everything but the picture printing.
Printing to the photo glossy paper. Everything from Iphone to Printer (AirPrint) Waaaay too dark!
Bought this one so the wife could print from iphone.
If I put the picture on my PC system from the Iphone and THEN print, it is fine. So it has to be in the Airprint feature somehow.
Gotta be able to lighten it somehow, I printed several all that printed dark. Tried changing ICM handled by host to handled by printer. didn't seem to make any difference.

Were the photos you are printing taken with the iPhone camera? (iPhone 4 or 4S?) Are you printing from the iPhone Photo app?
You lost me when you mentioned the ICM setting. iOS doesn't have an ICM setting.

The pictures are taken on iPhone 4 and printed to the printer via AirPrint from the phone.

> The ICM settings are in your driver in the PC. in the advanced settings. It is a win7 PC.
I'm not an HP employee and so it is not my driver.

I was just confused by your previous posting as it sounded like you expected that changing the ICM setting on your PC would effect the way that your iPhone printer.
Are you printing from the Photos app?

I had that same problem and I think I found 2 solutions. I think the second solution is a better option.
I found that if I wanted to adjust the brightness of the photo, I put my photos onto a camera memory card and slide it into the SD drive (front left bottom corner) of the printer.
Then click on photos --> view print --> memory card --> select the photo you want to print --> edit --> adjust brightness
You can also find the instructions to the darkness at this link
The photo came out better but the color was faded. The second solution should fix this problem.
At the edit photo menu (same place as where you want to adjust brightness of the photo), I turned the automatic retouching off and did not change the brightness.
The photo came out pretty okay.
I hope this helps! I am going to try to look for a program/software that can adjust the brightness and automatic retouching options through the computer.
